Worship Service for February 18, 2024

Updated: Feb 20

Welcome

 

Call to Worship

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!For His mercy endures forever.

Psalm 136:1

 

Hymn # 125 Let All Things Now Living 

1 Let all things now living a song of thanksgiving

to God our Creator triumphantly raise;who fashioned and made us, protected and stayed us,

who guides us and leads to the end of our days,His banners are o'er us, his light goes before us,

a pillar of fire shining forth in the night,‘till shadows have vanished and darkness is banished,

as forward we travel from light into light.


2 His law he enforces: the stars in their courses,

the sun in its orbit obediently shine;The hills and the mountains, the rivers and fountains,

the deeps of the ocean proclaim him divine.We too, should be voicing our love and rejoicing,

with glad adoration, a song let us raise,‘till all things now living unite in thanksgiving

to God in the highest, hosanna and praise!

 

Call To Confession 

And God spoke all these words, saying:

2 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

3 You shall have no other gods before Me.

4 You shall not make for yourself a carved image...5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them.

7 You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.

8 Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

12 Honor your father and your mother.

13 You shall not murder.

14 You shall not commit adultery.

15 You shall not steal.

16 You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

17 You shall not desire...anything that is your neighbor’s.

 

I acknowledged my sin to You,

And my iniquity I have not hidden.

I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”

And You forgave the iniquity of my sin.

For this cause everyone who is godly shall pray to You

In a time when You may be found.

Psalm 32:5–6 (NKJV)

 

Confession of Sins

Let us, therefore, confess our sin, saying together:

 

“Have mercy upon me, O God, according to Your lovingkindness; according to the multitude of Your tender mercies, blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions, and my sin is always before me... Hide Your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities” through Jesus your Son. Amen.

 

Word of Assurance 

For as the heavens are high above the earth,

So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him;

As far as the east is from the west,

So far has He removed our transgressions from us.

As a father pities his children,

So the Lord pities those who fear Him.

Psalm 103:11–13 (NKJV)

 

Song of Renewal 

Gracious God my heart renew,

Make my spirit right and true;

Cast me not away from thee,

Let thy Spirit dwell in me;

Thy salvation's joy impart.

Steadfast make my willing heart.

#486, stanza 5 (Ps 51:10-11)

 

Scripture Lesson: Philippians 2:12-16

12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; 13 for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.

14 Do all things without complaining and disputing, 15 that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, 16 holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.

And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory forever. Amen.”

 

Hymn # 448 We Have Heard the Joyful Sound

1 We have heard the joyful sound:Jesus saves! Jesus saves!Spread the tidings all around:Jesus saves! Jesus saves!Bear the news to ev’ry land,Climb the steeps and cross the waves;Onward!  'tis our Lord's command;Jesus saves! Jesus saves!


2 Waft it on the rolling tide,Jesus saves! Jesus saves!Tell to sinners far and wide,Jesus saves! Jesus saves!Sing, ye islands of the sea,Echo back, ye ocean caves;Earth shall keep her jubilee,Jesus saves, Jesus saves.


3 Sing above the battle strife,Jesus saves! Jesus saves!By His death and endless life,Jesus saves! Jesus saves!Sing it softly through the gloom,When the heart for mercy craves,Sing in triumph o'er the tomb,Jesus saves! Jesus saves!4 Give the winds a mighty voice,Jesus saves! Jesus saves!Let the nations now rejoice.Jesus saves! Jesus saves!Shout salvation full and free,Highest hills and deepest caves;This our song of victory,Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
